Hey!  Grin My name is Guillherme and im a brazilian java programmer(sorry for any typo) and this is the project im working on for the past 3-4 months, thats my first "big" project.

Wave Defender(not final name) is a 2D stage rpg type game, alot like Binding of Isaac that runs in my own engine using basically java2D and slick for sound, so performance can be a problem with the lighting system Sad

My bigest difficulty is the game art, 70% of sprites are placeholders and you may recognize some of than xP. It would be awsome if someone helped me but im playing around with photoshop and doing some sprites myself.

SreenShots:

Port this game to WebGL and you'll get so much more plays. It looks good and I'd definitely play it during school.

You think I haven't been monitoring the chat? http://pastebin.java-gaming.org/c47d35366491fHere is a compilation <3

Thanks! I had never considered using WebGL, may give it a try. I challenge you to pass fase 10, it gets kind of crazy after that hehe

This site is called java-gaming.org. Why would you expect there to be a Javascript+WebGL version?

In all the time you wasted with your utterly useless posts, you could've just downloaded the game, allowing you to actually play it and give some feedback.

Make the game language english, many people will get turned off by it not being english.

Good work, it sure looks good, especially for a 3-4 month project! I'm attempting to download now. Must say that's a bit of an issue when downloading from megaupload.com. To be honest, I can't seem to manage it. I'm clicking on the "Free User" button and the page refreshes, but no download (using Chrome).

You may consider putting it on another download site (or if its below 2 MB on the "my files" section of JGO).

Thanks man! Appreciate the feedback. Its working fine with me, you just have to click twice in the slow download botton. First time the page will "refresh" and the second will initiate the download.
Its far from 2MB haha, 17,1MB but 60% are SFX + music and 30% sprites

Nope, it won't...at least not for me. I can click that button over and over again and all it does is refreshing the page (tried with Chrome and Firefox)... Sad

Okay, this time I could download it and got it running with no trouble at all. You've managed to put in quite a bit of depth already, with the inventory and the leveling up / getting skills.

Some remarks:
  • I could not close the "Menu level" by clicking return, only pressing escape worked
  • It took me some time to figure out that the skill tree in this menu starts at the top. Maybe make clickable skills a slightly different color? Or lighter?
  • One thing that distracted a bit of the fun for me was an impotent feeling: the bullets I fire feel extremely weak and inconsequential. I'd rather see twice as many enemies that take 1 or 2 shots to kill (except bosses) than fewer enemies with more health. Make the player feel powerful / meaningful (could also be done by making the bullet effect a bit more spectacular).

Really good work also in introducing the player to the game. The popups work very well and helped me along nicely. Overall I think you made a great start. and you seem to have a good idea about introducing the player to the game, balancing the difficulty and making things interesting. Keep up the good work  Grin

You´re the second person that tried that haha, this button returns all points that aren't applied yet, will make it clearer next update

Fixed! Cheesy Made locked bottons darker

Good point, it sure when fighting(with low damage) Lady Orc makes you feel small and weak. Although it can easyly become a mess with the current map size.

When added all monster sprites the "take damage" animation will definitely make it more spectacular  Cheesy
But i'm definitely changing the bullet sprite too, its just a placeholder

Keep it up the feedback guys!!
